Some other email clients have the feature "run at Windows startup" or so, plus "minimized to system tray at startup". This option is very convenient for users, especially the  tray icon  feature. With this option, it does not always occupy the taskbar. I wonder why Thunderbird does not have this config option. I also searched on the web and found a lot of people asking how to do this. As you may know, there is some add-on to accomplish this function, but it is out-dated and only works on Firefox 2. I highly suggest that Thunderbird should have this simple feature, although this is not necessary for Firefox at all. I like Thunderbird because it's powerful. I just switched to Thunderbird, and it is fully satisfactory except this tray-startup issue. Thank you for reading this. Hope to see the improvement.

Bug 208923 was reported in 2003! Many commented that they liked the idea! I wonder why, I wonder why this idea has still not been concerned seriously? It is just a simple idea!
That bug is relying on Bug 325353, which is being worked on. no work can be done on getting a systray icon without that bug being fixed. This will probably not make it into 3, but maybe 3.1, or 4, whatever is next.
